Spiritual Growth.


The messenger.

What is important for spiritual growth is “process” not “substance”. The first is necessary and the second is interesting.
Full enlightenment can be attained by process without substance.
Process = Living: attitude and action.
Substance = Acquisition: knowledge.


About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood, he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of regular periods of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book. February 2020. My search - my journey, is now complete.

    Dear Ian,

    This one is too complex for me.

    ‘Spiritual Growth’ sounds like a contradiction in terms. Spirit, as I feel it, is One and Dimensionless. So I don’t know how to apply growth and shrinkage to measure the process of awakening.

    Enlightenment sounds like a form of knowledge, if you say it is achieved by the process.

    In my opinion humble opinion, enlightenment is a state or a condition of the moul.

    A process without substance? Beats me completely… I always thought it is a process of elimination… Like, Not this, not this, not this and so on till, Yes This!
